Birmingham have rejected a fourth bid from Reading for striker Clayton Donaldson

The 31-year-old striker joined the Blues on a free transfer last summer from Brentford after he rejected a new contract at the Bees following their promotion from League One.

Leeds United have had a bid rejected for his signature but didn’t carry their interest any further, unlike Reading, who started off with a £500,000 bid escalating to £800,000 and then £1 million, all plus add ons.

They have now had an offer of £2 million plus add-ons rejected by Birmingham as Gary Rowett remains intent on keeping his star players this summer for a push towards promotion this coming season.

However, with Leeds and Ipswich lingering, it is unknown as to whether Reading will continue their interest as they search for a new striker this summer.

Reading fans… What do you make of this news? Is Donaldson worth over £2 million? Let us know in the comments below.
